The cocoon error log just contains the same error message that's 
displayed in the browser. Tomcat is not having a problem with the 
database as other webapps are currently using it with no difficulty.

Yes, I am using the same username/password as the other webapps, and 
they are working fine. Also, I can change the user info and produce an 
authentication error, so this is clearly a different problem.

It is.

This is a possibility. I'm pretty sure I downloaded the right one, but 
I could be wrong--at least it's something I can double-check.

Is there any trick to un-installing cocoon? I tried removing all its 
folders from Tomcat, but when I put the new cocoon.war file in there it 
didn't do anything. :-/

Let me know if you recapture it. ;-)

Possibly. I'll let you know. At any rate, thank you very much for
